Students at Texas A&M University – Kingsville can rest assured knowing that Homecoming is always planned ahead of time so that they can enjoy themselves to their fullest.

One of many events will be the Kyle Park concert at 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 17 at Mesquite Grove.

“The concert provides a great atmosphere for students and alumni who are here for the homecoming festivities to socialize on campus and promotes spirit,” said Erin McClure, director of student activities.

The Homecoming committee, which includes Justin Munos, interim alumni director, McClure, and various university departments surveyed students and found that Texas Country was the most wanted genre of music, and Kyle Park was the most popular artist.

“Kyle’s touring manager has been very pleasant to work with and is adaptable which is great since the concert is at an outdoor venue. We are excited to see what the performance has to offer,” McClure said.

Senior student Mathew Garza said he is looking forward to the performance.

“I’m expecting him, Kyle Park, to provide us with a great concert. He is a very well-known Texas country artist liked by many, including myself,” Garza said. “This university has done an amazing job in the past years with homecoming festivities and selection of good artists for the post bonfire concerts. Last year, I attended the Bart Crow Band concert and had a great time, so I’m looking forward to doing the same this coming Friday night.”

Funding for the concert was provided by the Office of Development & Alumni Affairs and the Office of Student Activities. Staffing will be provided by the two offices, security will be provided by the University Police Department and concessions will be operated by Aramark.
